Something is newer than ever in New Fantasyland! Bonjour! Village Gift Shop over by Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom got a very subtle upgrade and it looks “Magnifique!” The shop is currently closed and it looks like a makeover is in the works.
The old exterior of the shop was a tan color, much like the rest of the buildings in the area. The new paint job makes it stand out with a mossy green look. It’s much more vibrant but still has a provincial appeal. There’s no telling what updates are happening inside while the shop is closed to the public!
Bonjour! Village Gift Shop opened back in December of 2012. Much of New Fantasyland debuted at that time, including other Beauty and the Beast attractions. This includes Gaston’s Tavern, Be Our Guest Restaurant, and Enchanted Tales with Belle. These attractions were closed due to last year’s lockdowns, and Enchanted Tales with Belle has yet to reopen. There’s no better time to do a makeover than now!
The gift shop typically sells themed merchandise from Beauty and the Beast. Guests can find T-shirts, dishes, blankets, and more. Since reopening at Christmastime last year, social distancing has been prioritized with plexiglass at the registers and markers on the floor. What do you think they’ll be changing inside the store next?
We love the new mossy green exterior at Bonjour! Village Gift Shop. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
